Question about Craftsman 24 Hp 48" Deck Yard Tractor
Using my mower to blow leaves to side of driveway. started backfiring and seemed tp be running at almost half power. changed plugs/oil/air filter. started it back up and it still does same. do i need new engine
or what. mower is about 5 years old. can the problem be with carb.

I would also check fuel flow. pull the gas line from the carb and see if gas flows out at a good rate (into a metal can of course) or if it trickles out. if the latter, then gas tank either has junk at the bottom preventing the gas from flowing or the vent hole (usually on the gas cap) is plugged.
i have also had my carb float bowl rust out on me, but that took 10 years.

Install carb kit, they are very fussy when it comes to fuel flow..
